Observation 120202: Psilocybe allenii Borov., Rockefeller & P.G. Werner
When: 2012-11-18

Notes: This is the first documented find of this species growing in coastal dune grasses.

All previous recorded collections are from urban wood chip landscaping.

My friend found another dune grass collection a few days later, leading me to believe that it isn’t extremely rare. Often misidentified as Psilocybe azurescens, but this species lacks the broad umbo that P. azurescens consistently has.
